What Is The Best Treatment For Vision Distortion
Eye MD: The best thing you could do is to see an ophthalmologist to determine what is happening to your vision and what to do about it.
I'm 58 recently diagnosed w/glaucoma & beginnings of peripheral vision loss. Please explain what aggressive treatment would mean for me?
With treatment can a 58 year old with 30 percent optic nerve damage avoid significant vision loss in their lifetime?
Dr says glaucoma caught early w/30% nerve damage & minimal peripheral vision loss. Begun treatment. Only 58 yrs. Old. What is long-term prognosis?
Good: The prognosis is good if you use the medications as directed and keep all follow up appointments with your ophthalmologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Can laser photocoagulation be used to treat macular degeneration? I was recently diagnosed with the "dry" form of macular degeneration. Is having laser photocoagulation a treatment option available to me, and would this prevent further vision loss? .
Laser no help: Laser for dry macular degeneration has been studied well. Laser to the macula of dry amd patients makes drusen go away, so it looks better on exam. The laser does not change whether or not there is vision loss. Vitamin supplementation is the only proven preventive therapy, and reduces the risk of vision loss by about 25%. The vitamin formula now recommended is called areds 2 formula.See 3 more doctor answers
Dr says glaucoma caught early w/30% nerve damage & some peripheral vision loss. Said w/out treatment could've been blind in 7 yrs. Can go that fast?
Depends: It depends on many factors, but the general rule of thumb is that it the higher the pressure, the faster vision loss can occur. The goal of glaucoma treatment is to lower the pressure to the point that vision loss does not progress or slows to the point that you will never go blind during your lifetime.See 1 more doctor answer
Recently diagnosed with glaucoma. No peripheral vision loss. 30% optic nerve damage. With treatment will nerve damage cause loss of vision?
Probably not: Glaucoma is readily treated with anti-pressure medication which should prevent any further damage in almost all cases. This is handled by ophthalmologists (you are not seeing an optometrist I hope?) who deal with this daily. There is a step ladder of treatments -- medication, laser, surgery to prevent further damage which can be quite effective.See 2 more doctor answers
If mother is resistant to eye drops and laser treatment for glaucoma, what is prognosis for daughter with glaucoma in stopping vision loss?
Wavy vision: Visual distortion occurs when straight lines focused on the retina become irregular and wavy..
Could be: The most likely cause for this symptoms is occipital migraine which causes a greying out of the vision the the corresponding peripheral 1/2 of vision of each eye with surrounding flashing lights lasting up to 2 hours and leaving with no trace. Persistent flashing in one eye only especially with lowered vision and floaters might be a retinal detachment and needs ophthalmological evaluation soon.
Eyes: Distorted vision when tired sounds like dry eye/poor blink when staring at a screen. Try blinking more or using artificial tears. Vision distortion can also come from retinal disease like macular degeneration/ diabetes or migrain (brain), but should have no relation to fatigue. Go to ophthal if not better.
